so is this a first? or the first it's been confirmed?? what systems do we have in place to make sure this doesn't happen? i've seen a few mentioned, but are they 100% systems, obviously not since we're talking about it right now.

what systems do the Russians have in place? I'm sure we have done the same to them.


Of course we have. We do it all the time. They do as well. Not just the Gulf... Submariners are submariners (whether U.S., Russian, etc...) They are always trying to outdo each other. I have heard stories of Russian and U.S. sub Commanders and crews playing cat and mouse for days trying to outmaneuver each other then meeting up discretely to exchange war stories. I don't know if these stories were true or not. But the sources seemed credible.

The US never knows #! Its a lie, they did know. They were waiting for Russia to make a move, so that they could make a move. The US saw the Pearl Harbor attack coming. They let it happen so that they could get a free ticket into war, resulting in WW2. But they said they didnt see it coming so that the public wouldnt be all mad and so that other crap against the country wouldnt happen.

It was detected... dont fall for such scum.

Waiting for something to happen? Neither country wants WW3... Especially if it starts with subs that are carrying nukes... It would pretty much mean mutual destruction of their families back home.... I am sure we knew they were there. Just like they sometimes know when we are in their territory. But the fact that nothing happened and no war broke out just goes to show they were just having a little fun... I guess its the little things in life when you are stuck living in a tube under many tons of ocean... I bet at most our guys were hoping they would have mechanical problems and would need to be rescued...

It's quite humorous how so many of you like to pick and choose what you want to believe.



[color=FFAB91]The government lies! The media lies. The government lies! THEY ALL LIE!!!!

Then unquestionably accept a story that apparently originated in a Washington D.C. Newspaper.

Indeed, the US provoked the Japanese by ultimately freezing all Japanese assets in the US and ending all imports and exports including the oil Japan depended on. IMO, we declared war on Japan and Japan even went to great lengths to try to meet US demands because they did not want war with the US, but FDR wanted Hitler and Hitler would not get into a war with the US unless someone else attacked us first. We used Japan and provoked them into attacking Pearl Harbor because FDR wanted Hitler. FDR sat in Britain and watched Japan's planes on radar go to the Harbor for the attack.

This situation with the Russian sub doesn't make sense. Why admit such incompetence? It's war games of some kind, but I don't believe for a second we didn't know they were there. If that was the truth, why would they tell the public that basically, the Russians have sub technology that can elude our radars and scare the S out of everyone. There's some agenda behind this.

It wouldn't surprise me if other nations had technology like this though, either, but the US wouldn't announce to the public that our multi-billion dollar defense system couldn't detect a sub off our coast.

Really a DELL???? wow. You are sitting in a white chair... Maybe its beige... I have to say whitish chair I am not good with colors... There is ablue lamp next to you but it is not on. You are watching something on TV while you sit on the internet... Someone on TV just screwed up...

There are about 50 in the U.S Navy that I know of. You can probably google that information now... They are not always around the U.S. cost. They travel all around the world... I bet you could probably find out where most of them are at any given time on google. So much for matters of national security being kept secret.

Actually looks like I was close:

Composition of the current force

Ohio class (18 in commission) — 14 ballistic missile submarines (SSBN'S), 4 guided missile submarines (SSGN's)- missile submarines
Virginia class (7 in commission, 3 under construction, 4 on order) — fast attack submarines
Seawolf class (3 in commission) — attack submarines
Los Angeles class (43 in commission, 2 in reserve) — attack submarines


That was from Wiki...
